Islam teaches us how to attain the best in this life and the next. This relates not only to spirituality and peace, but also to wealth, which is viewed as a means to an end and not a goal in and of itself.

While we often pray for rizq - which encompasses wealth, family life, good luck, spirituality and more - we can make more specific dua or supplication to ask God for help in wealth and success both in this life and the next.

So, what is the best dua for wealth? 🤲

One of the best duas for increasing wealth comes from the Holy Quran [3:38] where Prophet Zakariya made supplication for offspring, which at the time meant continuity of family. He made the following dua:

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِن لَّدُنكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً ۖ إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ

Transliteration: Rabbi hab li min ladunka dhurriyyatan tayyibatan. Innaka sami'ud-du'a.

Translation: "My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication."

While this dua was made specifically for children, it can be understood to not only be asking for offspring but for also other worldly sustenance including to provide for and raise those children.

5 more things to recite for wealth

1. Dua for protection against poverty

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحَزَنِ، وَالْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ، وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ، وَضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ، وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ

Transliteration: Allahumma inni a'udhu bika minal-hammi wal-hazani, wal-'ajzi wal-kasali, wal-bukhli wal-jubni, wa dala'id-dayni wa ghalabatir-rijal.

Translation: "O Allah, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being overpowered by men (others)."

This important dua asks God to save us from the hardships of poverty and the mental afflictions, like depression, that can come with it. We ask that we do not experience poverty as it may affect our ability to practice our faith.

2. Dua for blessings in what we have

اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا رَزَقْتَنِي

Transliteration: Allahumma barik li fee ma razqtani.

Translation: "O Allah, bless me in what You have provided me."

This dua can be seen as a form of gratitude in that we are acknowledging what God has already given us and we also ask for blessings in our property.

3. Dua for good in this world

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Transliteration: Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil 'akhirati hasanatan waqina 'adhaban-nar.

Translation: "Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire."
In this oft-repeated dua from the Quran [2:201], we ask Allah for everything that is Good in this life and the next and protection against that which might lead us astray.

4. Dua for contentment

In this Hadith recorded in Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, it was mentioned that Ibn 'Abbas used to make the following supplication:

اللَّهُمَّ قَنِّعْنِي بِمَا رَزَقْتَنِي وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ 

Transliteration: Allahumma qanni'ni bima razqtani wa barik li feeh.

Translation: "O Allah, make me content with what You have provided me, and bless it for me."

This form of expressing gratitude has recently been scientifically-linked to happiness and being grateful for what we have also reminds us to be fortunate versus those who do not have what we do.

5. Dua for mercy

رَبِّ اغْفِرْ وَارْحَمْ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِينَ

Transliteration: Rabbi ighfir warham wa anta khayrur rahimeen.

Translation: "My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the Best of the merciful."

Ultimately as Muslims we turn to Allah alone and we ask Him to shower His mercy upon us, including blessings and everything good in this life.

We always ask that Allah continues to keep us on the straight path no matter what levels of wealth he provides for us. Ameen.
